Mike Libecki - Untamed Antarctica

2015-10-25

(805) 893-3535

Few had seen it, and no one had ever set foot on it. Those factors made Bertha’s Tower, a 2,000-foot spire in Antarctica’s remote Wohlthat Range, irresistible to a small team of accomplished climbers led by veteran Mike Libecki. Irresistible – but also nearly inaccessible. Libecki, climber-photographer Cory Richards, and two colleagues battled extreme cold, furious katabatic winds, and fickle weather in an epic, ten-day climb to the summit. Join Libecki for a humorous but gripping firsthand account of this first ascent at the bottom of the world. Call (805) 893-3535 Visit https://artsandlectures.sa.ucsb.edu/Details.aspx?PerfNum=3322
